democrat, young this man and the senate, 35-years-old, to marco rubio did what lay ahead and done. he did the numbers. in other words, stephen douglas d. term and that there were enough combinations of votes in the senate to pass the different parts of the compromise but not all at once. so the past six separate bills using different combinations. so the lesson is persuasion is necessary and imperative to sway the downfall but if you don't do the numbers coming you won't succeed. these men together cindy obsequy to this gimmick we are speaking with fergus bordewich authors of "america's great debate" stephen a. douglas and the compromise of the union. thank you. >>> i think the writers institute is very important with a culture. we are a culture of words and voices. words are key to our imagination and capacity to envision things. we ourselves are not completely tied to print on the page. but i think that there is no other art form so readily

millions and his work. marco rubio, pat toomey. very conservative, anti-tax, anti-government purists in the mold of jim demint. however, he also backed in republican primaries a number of republican candidates who simply were not electable according to the republican establishment and the establishment was right. for example, remember christine o'donnell, i'm not a witch, from delaware. ken buck of colorado. and others. so those are some of the reasons why he definitely has ruffled many a-feather with the party leaders and i have to tell you first thing i saw when the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell released a statement today was making the point that demint had, quote, uncompromising service. didn't have to read between the lines too much to see there's a backhanded compliment. >> dana, what about bigger picture here and talking about the republican party aenl just talking about folks like ryan and rubio, let's say, part of maybe the next generation republicans. do you think that demint's brand of republicanism is falling out of favor with sort of the newer version of what

story. it says here that marco rubio does not want to be the hispanic candidate, and paul ryan does not want to be the austerity guy. both want to run for president. each is trying to change their own image. our cameras will be there covering that dinner. from pennsylvania, a republican caller, what do you make of this bid put out by house republicans yesterday? caller: i think it is bad because i am a senior and i depend on social security and medicare. host: continue. caller: i think it is not right because i am a senior and there are a lot of other seniors out there who depend on social security and medicare. every time you hear something, it is social security and medicare. the seniors are numbers. we have plenty of us out here. i am a veteran of vietnam. it seems like every time something comes up, the american people have to fight, fight, fight. we are tired of fighting. it is time for the republican party to stop arguing with them bending the 2% of the republican party is not going to do me no good. what about the 98% of us, and the seniors also? independent, an c analler ca

speak, how do you avoid being the hispanic candidate this? >> my name is marco rubio and i come from where i come from and proud. it influences my public policy in a positive way. doesn't make me better than anyone else or more qualified. makes me who i am and i will continue to do that, not for an ethnic purpose but for a policy purpose. it informs me and allows me to relate and apply public policy. why do i care about programs in student loans, because i had them. i think that's a good thing in public policy and that's why we have a representative republic. >> lois has a question. >> senator, you have said, i have heard you say that the latino community is quite conservative, social issues, fiscally as is the african-american community. both communities rejected your party. beyond immigration reform, you know, what kind of policies should the party put forth? it's not just the message or rhetoric that could track this demographic back, like for instance, there was a lot of talk during the campaign like the children of immigrants being able to go to school. what else can they offer

journalists and author bob woodward and marco rubio. a little after 8:00 a.m. eastern. at 10:00 o'clock, the senate appropriations committee will hear about the federal response hurricane sandy. fema director craig fugate and senators from some of the affected states. the house foreign affairs committee and the regional influence. that is at 2:00 p.m. eastern. the senate voted on the u.n. treaty for the disabled. sixty-six votes were needed for ratification. sixty-eight to 38 the vote failed. >> i think it would be fair not to use of the time in an unfair way. i would ask that if they are not ready to use their time, that this be charged against them. because i think it is important that we don't give a part-time as a result of that. i ask unanimous consent that we not be charged that time. >> is there objection? >> the senator from indiana. >> in terms of our side, i would like to pursue the rights of our members to have the maximum amount of time as possible >> i see there is a member on the other side who is of the opposition. so i would yield. >> i would yield 10 minutes to th

party senators like ron johnson, mike lee, marco rubio, pat toomey rand paul geoff flake, geoff fisher. perhaps his worst was backing todd aiken after todd aikenenths "legitimate rape," he donated to aiken's come pain but his attempts to remake the republican party in his conservative image has errands him actually the scorn of more moderate republicans. washington post columnist jennifer rubin wrote today, quote, "demint has been a destructive force, thread anything to primary colleagues resisting all deals and offering very little in the way of attainable legislation." she's right. the legislation that he backed was pretty far out there. for example, he pushed a bill that would make it illegal to discuss abortion on the internet, to even discuss it. he wanted to make it illegal for gay people or unmarried women having premarital sex to be teachers at all. he led the opposition to obamacare. he said if he could stop the law from passing, it would quote break the president. he put a hold on the national women's history museum. governor nikki haley
